Sublimity 'Sublimity'. I lay thee down: 
Great Volume of the t/e.i • older far 

Than Cheops' "vramid or tlio Parthenon; 
And yet ?» new as yesteriv en's star. 

That came and burned so bright uiid pure, ucrns!« 
The world's ^reat weanntvts and day's decline 

What are all earth's ambitions, vcain and loss, 
Her hopes ephcme al; when thou art mine? 

Thou stand'st, a crystal well of water pure. 

Amid those fevered fonts of heathen wine. 
Graven in truth's deep rock that shall endure. 

So greatly human, yet so all divine ! 

This age doth press upon me like a vast, 
Grim adamantine wall of evil doom ; 

But V hen I drink thy livins; draught, I cast 
Aside this vesture of mnterial gloom ; 

These curtains of mortality fall apart; 

And out. and up. beyond, eternally. 
Those stairway of God's ages; and man's part 

In all that greatness, gone, and yet to be! 




Zht Baugfjttr o( Cartti 

iler cheeks have nil the Tvrlan dye , 
Like Sprinic when alt her windst arc south ; 

All mystery dwells in hor eyes. 
And all love's witcheries round her mouth ; 

Which is a wondrous Cupid's how, 

Full sweet and ripe; maturity 
Of scarlet honey hilled in snow. 

Whereon a god miKht clin|{ and die. 

Her hair. It is of sunlixht spun. 

And beechen copper round her hrow : 

tier face! Who can express it? One 
Needs all the skill love can endow. 

To picture all Its ' -rfect curves. 
And marbled (-a. ', rose of dawn. 

Where miscinef tu \s, or pri<le reserves 
The beauty of tn .- startled f;iw n. 

Her eyes, a universe alone. 

Like opnls flamed with velvet fire: 

Wlierc all unconscious on his throne, 
/. nod unwaked, sltcps yount; Desire. 

And when I k;i/i; upon hor, I 

All other seiist- of life forget, 
Al' tear and hate, all memory. 

All sense of pain and old rcKret; 

All save that hour, immortal woe! 

Down the lon^ centuries that blur, 
Beside Atlantis' slopes of snow. 

When I, a youna jjod, gazed on her; 

And knew her first, that woeful dream 
Of fear, joy, beauty, lure ar d mirth ; 

Compounded rich of bole and xleam 
Lxquisite essence of all earth; — 

The while Atlantis' peak r-^ared high. 
And all great Ocean's stream ran round ; 

And Heaven and Earth death's ecstasy. 
And immort dity had found.
